The only problem a group holiday organiser in New York should encounter is choosing what to do, what to eat, what to drink and where to party from the thousands of equally brilliant options available in this vibrant city.
A great thing about the city is that the famous attractions such as Central Park, Ellis Island and Brooklyn Bridge are always rewarding to visit. With that in mind, a great tip is to take a trip to the top of the most famous one of all, the Empire State Building, at the start of your trip to really get your bearings in New York. Get walking and use the Subway to explore some of New York’s most interesting neighbourhoods. Greenwich Village (also known as the West Village) is a must: grab a pizza at Joe’s for a quick bite on the go or John’s for a sit-down meal while there. A few minutes away, the Lower East Side is also superb for a stroll and has a different feel. The Upper West Side is always a good bet and so too are Chinatown, Little Italy, SoHo and Tribeca.
A great place to start a night out is the Corner Bistro in Greenwich Village, a cosy place that has been serving fantastic burgers and beer for decades. For larger groups you might try Beer Authority near Times Square, which has gastropub food and a great beer selection. Then head off to one of the thousands of superb bars, whether it’s something like Crimson & Rye, a cool cocktail bar on East 54th Street, or Fools Gold on East Houston Street for a great selection of beers. For clubbing, your best bet is to grab a copy of the latest Time Out New York and look through the listings to work out what suits your group party. But to get you started, you could try Culture Club on West 39th Street if you fancy a (slightly pricey) throwback to the 70s, 80s and 90s. Or get out of Manhattan and try Output in Brooklyn if you are serious about your music and appreciate great sound systems. If live music is your thing, Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge are both worth checking out. So too is the Living Room and many other small venues on the Lower East Side.
